better short-term memory and faster reaction times compared with the control group, acco
rding findings published March 27 in the China-based journal National Science Review.
The study also found that transgenic monkeys’ brains took longer to develop, in a similar fashion to humans.
The experiment has divided the scientific community however, with a number of Western scientists criticizing it as uneth
ical, while some went as far to suggest, perhaps ironically, that it could lead to a Planet of the Apes-type scenario.
The Kunming Institute of Zoology told China Daily in a statement that the experiment was ethically approved in 2010.
In 2015 the animal rights committee of Kunming Biomed International, a research organiza
tion specializing in nonhuman primates, also declared the animals were being treated humanely in every
step of the experiment, in accordance with domestic and international regulations, the statement said.

BEIJING – A recent survey by China’s State Post Bureau said 35.8 percent of delivery workers c
onsidered their occupation “promising” and would like to continue in that position.
The survey consisted of 6,000 delivery people across China mostly born in the 1980s and 1990s.
About 76 percent of the delivery workers are from rural areas, wh
ile nearly 16 percent are from towns or counties, according to the survey.
Major sources of stress for delivery workers include low wages and insufficient benefits, lack of understanding of t
heir job from customers and the public, long working hours and little chances of promotion, the survey said.
Most of those surveyed earn less than 5,000 yuan ($743) per month but gen
erally gain more during the annual Double 11 online shopping spree in No
vember, during which over 80 percent of the country’s delivery workers handle more than 200 packages per day.
China’s express delivery industry is rapidly developing, with around 3 million delivery workers.
”Delivery worker” was added to the revision of the national occupation list of China in 2015, meaning it has been recognized by the state as an occupation.
If Europe’s leaders, diplomats and security professionals had a vote in the 2020 US presidential elections, it doesn’t see
m likely they’d give it to President Trump. At least, that’s how it seemed at the 2019 Munich Security Conference.
Hundreds of dignitaries crammed into tight corridors, moving between the modest meeting halls of Munich’s Bayerischer Hof Hotel.
The event has grown in recent years. As prime ministers and presidents rub shoulders wit
h CEO’s and policy wonks, conversations straddle global differences and attempt to shape the world order.

It is an odd, almost old-fashioned mix. It’s rare at global summits these days that repo

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg surprised me, praising my sturdy weather-beating boots and trou
sers. He laughed when I told him he was lucky inside. I was outside, the sun was blazing and, frankly, I was baking.
